Nigerians will never cease to be Nigerians, surely a case of ” by their fruit, you shall know them. The picture below shows police officers interrupting a sham wedding between a Nigerian man living illegally in the UK and a Portuguese woman. Home Office immigration officers swooped on the ceremony, which was held at a registry office in Harrow, North London. The man, 32, has now been sent back to Nigeria, and the woman, 22, is on bail until November 7.


According to police, the 22-year-old woman may have married for cash on three separate occasions


It emerged that they knew little about each other and that the man was working in the UK illegally. Harrow Council leader Susan Hall said: ‘It is appalling to see the lengths some people go to in dressing up and organising guests for a sham marriage. ‘A marriage is supposed to be the happiest day in your life. Well, in this case, the couple certainly got a day they won’t forget.’
